Wetpour Repair Surfacing is a fantastic choice for many playgrounds and leisure areas as it offers a high level of impact protection. Using different layers of rubber granules it is able to absorb the energy from falling children which means that should they fall on the surface it will not cause them any serious injuries. Having wetpour safety surfacing installed on your site will make your facility a much safer environment for children to play in and can help to protect adults as well.
However, wetpour surfacing like any other surface can become damaged over time. It is important that your wetpour surface is proactively maintained and any damage to the surfacing is repaired as soon as it is seen. This will prevent the damage from expanding over time which can be expensive for you to fix later on in the future.
Ensuring Safety: How Wetpour Repairs Keep Playgrounds Secure
One of the most common issues that we see with wetpour surfaces is shrinkage around the edges of the surface. This can lead to a trip hazard and should be fixed as soon as it is spotted. This is easily fixed by a process called a ‘band repair’ and is carried out by cutting the existing edging and filling it back in with new wetpour which is graded to match the surrounding area.
This is a quick and easy process that can be carried out by the client or a member of staff at your facility. Soft Surfaces provides wetpour repair kits which contain the correct ratio of rubber granules and polyurethane binder for anyone to carry out a small repair themselves.
